      It's amazing that the Docs DON'T tell us about these supplements. They feel threatened by anything the Pharma people tell them and they HATE supplements...competition.

      @barryboomer I couldn't agree more! I lucked out with my doc, but time and time again I hear about getting a prescription instead of trying something that's all natural... Like they're in such a hurry to pull out the scrip pad.

      Hey Dave.....that's all they have and all they know. I'm convinced that if ALL the Oncologists and Cancer Researchers had Cancer they would have found different treatments by now. Never ask an Oncologist about what to eat or cancer and food as they don't know or they are afraid to talk to you about it as they can get in trouble.

      Whoops sorry I'll try again. Comp issues. Had same problem. The rash and welps sores were infected and never completely healed. I'm back in the hospital now. Watch out for the infection. I had to have port cath removed and sores on my bottom packed. Just to let you know. Not trying to scare. Good luck and God bless!
